earth note 357

rocky mountain national park, colorado

the grassland
before the peaks
shift each morning in the sunrise
it's in their nature
to confront & adjust

a mystic sculpture lies
at the top of the mountain
some say a woman
resting her eyes
from the troubles of the world
synthesizing all the green 
to become brown with the earth
brown as the origin
of all life
as the indigenous

when snow joins
the river
what passes
for calm
will be broken
